Ivana Trump Denies Rape Story and Endorses Donald Trump for President
Donald Trump’s run for the White House has been marked by controversy. After announcing that he wanted to make America great again, the businessman turned reality tv star took a swipe at illegal immigrants and Mexico causing rifts with many of his business relationships. Now with new allegations that he raped his ex-wife Ivana, The Donald is getting support from some surprising places.
The tycoon’s first wife Ivana has responded to the allegations originally made in a 1993 “The Last Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump,” and more recently in an article in the Daily Beast. The former Mrs. Trump told CNN:
I have recently read some comments attributed to me from nearly 30 years ago at a time of very high tension during my divorce from Donald. The story is totally without merit. Donald and I are the best of friends and together have raised three children that we love and are very proud of. I have nothing but fondness for Donald and wish him the best of luck on his campaign.
Ivana didn’t stop there. She threw in her own endorsement of her ex-husband adding:
Incidentally, I think he would make an incredible President.
Huh? Did Ivana go spend some time in an ashram? Did The Donald fork over some moolah? The former spouses had an ugly divorce after Ivana ran into The Donald’s mistress on a ski slope in Aspen. It was a showdown that led to the split of a couple that seemed to have it all. Donald appeared to love Ivana’s business savvy and put her in charge of his Atlantic City casinos boasting to the world that he was paying her one dollar a year and all of the dresses she could buy. But they were unable to weather the storm that was Marla Maples. Maples famously announced that sex with Donald was the best she had ever had.
Donald and Ivana went to war with Ivana fighting the prenup, saying she deserved more. She later wrote a book that many, including her ex-husband believed to be a veiled account of life with her ex-husband.
A lot of time has passed since their bitter divorce and maybe it helps that his marriage to Marla did not end happily ever after because Ivana is refuting the rape allegations despite accounts in the book that reportedly came from her confidantes. Denying a 30-year-old claim is one thing, but endorsing him for president too?
